This weeks theme is Food:
Guess what I had as my birthday dinner on Wednesday? Yep, easy guess, Chinese food. For some reason I’d had a craving for eggrolls for at least a week.
It figures, this is the only time our order got messed up. My husband Chris got all chatty on the phone with the lady taking our order and she tried to talk him into getting on of their special combo orders. Most of it sounded ok but it didn’t include one of the items that I really wanted to eat so we said no to the combo. We could have saved a few dollars if we’d gotten the combo she was pushing, but I wanted what I wanted. She repeated our proper order back to Chris and they concluded the call.
I hadn’t been feeling very well all day Wednesday and when we’d ordered the food, and when it arrived, I was feeling particularly bad, so we just left the bag done up so that it would stay warm. Approximately one hour after the food had arrived I felt better and we decided to eat. By this time the restaurant was closed since we’d ordered so late.
When we opened the bag, two of our items had been changed to items that had been on the combo. Instead of our order including a Chicken mixed veggie dish, and Singapore Noodles (the item that I really wanted) it had Chicken balls and bbq’d pork sliced. Yuck! How disappointing!
We’ve had a busy few days since my birthday what with our new Brazilian boarder having arrived early Thursday morning. So I haven’t had time to call the restaurant to tell them that they messed up our order, but I will call them sometime today. Usually when we’ve had problems with orders from other restaurants they’ve given us a credit on our next order. We’ll see what this place does.
Oh and thanks to everyone that left me a birthday message. That was really nice to hear “Happy Birthday” from so many people. My sister remembered, but my brothers forgot, as did most of my in-laws other than one of Chris’ aunts. Oh well. That’s ok, I don’t really care that much about birthdays, but it was nice to get so many greetings. I even heard from an old friend that I hadn’t spoken with for 3 years, and another old friend that’s only recently been back in touch with me in the last few months. Both of those greetings were nice surprises.
Thanks again, and I hope everyone has a great Saturday! I’m hoping to go to the Metro Toronto Zoo today if it doesn’t pour rain as it’s supposed to (and if I feel well enough to go, as I’m not feeling so hot right now).
Leave a Linky only if you are a Saturday Scavenger Hunt participant, thanks! Oh and don’t link and run – that’s rude!
